Our coaching staff and board place player safety at the top of our priorities for the Junior Wolverines. Here are some of the ways we keep safety first for our players as well.

All coaches for the Junior Wolverines have passed background checks and completed training by USA Football. In addition to coaching skills, this means coaches have training for Concussion Prevention as well as monitoring and response to other common football risks.
All games in the KVC league will have a paramedic or athletic trainer at games to ensure any injuries are addressed quickly and appropriately.
